This post for Peanut Butter Cheesecake is a little late, I was hoping to get it out before Mothers day so I could rave about BakingMad.com’s collection of Mothers day recipes. On the plus side, this will still be in time for everyone on the other side of the pond!
Not to worry, they still have lots of other recipes to look over, I particularly like their collection of cupcakes as they have covered both adorable designs (like this caterpillar) and really interesting flavour combinations (I’m particularly intrigued by the amaretto pineapple).
Two recipes really stood out for me, firstly their low calorie victoria sponge, as it’s one of my favourite teatime treats, and of course, their peanut butter cheesecake.
It was a tough choice between the two, as to which recipe I was going to review, but the cheesecake just sounded too good.
The recipe was really easy to follow and the results were just incredible. Chocolate and peanut is always a winning combination, so sandwiching a rich creamy nut filling between two chocolate layers was absolute heaven.
The only thing I would change when I make it again is to make it in individual cups (like these charming panna cottas), I really liked the texture difference between the hard chocolate on top and the cheesecake but it wasn’t the neatest thing to cut up, which isn’t always the greatest thing when you’re serving something at a dinner party.
For the recipe please head over to BakingMad.com.
There aren’t many things that can excite me more than a good cheesecake (I’m a little deprived over here!) but one things has, the lovely people over at BakingMad.com offered to sponsor my very first give away!
